All Gloucester County Offices
Re-open to the Public

In alignment with the Governor’s guidance on Phase 3 re-openings across the Commonwealth, Gloucester County government began its next phase of reopening to the public on Monday.

With the latest phase of reopening, one customer per department will now be allowed into the offices on the second and third floors of Building #2 for in-person service, including Planning and Zoning, Environmental, Building Inspections, Finance, Central Purchasing, Economic Development, Human Resources and Administration. However, customers are still encouraged to utilize the mobile unit for drop-off and pickup service of applications and permits. 

Back to Business Middle Peninsula program launched
The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors allocated $512,000 in funds provided under the federal government’s CARES Act to help our local businesses impacted by COVID-19. The assistance will be in the form of a grant through the Middle Peninsula Planning District. This grant program is designed to reimburse the increased costs of changed business practices in response to the pandemic but not cover the normal cost of operating the business.

Grant applications for BACK TO BUSINESS MIDDLE PENINSULA are available at www.b2bmidpen.com .
